    1873 Trade Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1281, PR62

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1281, Pollock-1423, R.4, PR62 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse, designed by J. A. Bailly, features a coiled hair bust of Liberty facing left. The reverse mimics the "Amazonian" pattern silver dollar save for a reduction in the size of the eagle and the addition of the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM above and the weight and fineness below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Others were struck in silver with plain edges and in copper and aluminum with both edge types, but this remains by far the most collectible variant. An overlay of thin golden-olive patina provides a bit of color to razor-sharp, if lightly hairlined surfaces.
